      cheapest find will be a 16V passat 2.0 manual - maybe throw a .71 5th on it to make it live-able on the freeway. the massive torque from the 16v 2.0 will ensure your used tranny is in great shape lol.

      yeah i was sitting at light in a 335d and the car would just brake-stand burnout (you know how you do a rwd chevy) - the ecu couldn't reel in the monster torque and the rear brakes weren't effective...

      try 3 new motor mounts (not race style) - really helps.
